I read blogs.
I read lots of blogs.
Sometimes I think I could do that no probs.
Sometimes I wonder where this person found such wisdom and the ability to write it down and I think I could never do that no way not me no siree.
But it is currently obvious that I am doing it.
And my thought is that this first post could either be the most read of all my posts or could be the one that no one ever reads.
But either way it should have substance. It should show what the future of this blog holds.
But that’s where I falter.
Because I really am not sure.
So I will start with some things I am sure of and if we still like each other we’ll forge ahead and make a future together.
I will begin with me.
Because I know a lot about me.
I am my own Mastermind specialist subject.
My name is Susan Caddie. People call me Sue. My son calls me Susie.
I live in a small beach village about half an hour north of Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand.
I live with my (first) (you never know what life holds or indeed has already held) husband Gordon and my two offspring.
Finn is fourteen and attends our local high school. He is sporty and funny.
Rosa is 10. She is sugar and spice. She bakes and sings and reads and loves.
Gordy is the best man for me. No doubt. We sleep in the study because I decided our bedroom would make a much better sewing room.
Good idea he said.
I look after house stuff. Although do not take this to mean I do all the housework. Ah-uh I do not.
I transfer my children from place to place. I support their endeavours with my presence and my cheers and by supplying food at the right times and making sure they are paid up and kitted out and good to go.
I work part time teaching at a local primary school. I used to teach preschool music. I would like to be teaching children to sew.
I walk. Sometimes I run. I cycle. Correction. I ride a bike. I do all these things gently and without any sense of competition.
I read. I alternate between chick-lit and weightier tomes. Not War and Peace weighty.
I like magazines too.
Not crap ones.
You know who you are.
I travel. We all do. As much as we can. Which isn’t a much as some but probably more than most.
I stitch. With machine and by hand. With a pair of needles and most recently a hook. Getting there.
I love. The family that lives with me. The family I was born into. The family that I marrried into. My friends.
I like jokes. Puns, clever, a little bit grubby. Whatever you’ve got. I particularly like jokes you can share with kids but they’re surprised you shared them because they’re possibly a little bit naughty.
That’s a lot of me. Not everything of course. But 5 days in the draft folder is enough for any little fledgling blog post.
So there will be more to come. More detail. More colour. More me.
Hope that suits you.
Super duper Susie Sue
